I'm not found on the tip of the tongue
But I'm usually quite close by
Add a letter and you will see
That I'll soon take wing and fly.



Answer

Hang your head if you missed the clue,
For the title gives you the word shoo.
A shoe has a tongue that is covered in lace,
With an AGLET at its tip
To keep frayed ends in place.

Add an "e" and you will see,
As well as the eagle does.
The EAGLET will soar above you and me,
As soon as it loses its downy fuzz.
